Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infections the cat can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the cat's name and age?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Jupi

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jupi?

There is no way to make this diagnosis without proper diagnostics.....Your kitty would have to be put under anesthesia and have an exam or ears and throat to see if there is a polyp.....

did your kitty snore earlier in life or is this new?

Please let me know if the snoring is new and if ear infections are new? If your cat has always had problems with these two things which is possible then probably these things not related to a polyp.....if I don't get back to you tonight then I can get back to you tomorrow night as I check my computer nightly....DRB
